Argali Records

Welcome to Argali Records. We are a small, but dedicated venture run by John Lithium (who records under various solo projects) and Reon Mobius (of The Jesus Fish Experience). The intent of this label is to release high quality experimental music, of a wide variety of genres, moods, textures, and techniques. We have also been fortunate enough to release a few experimental music compilations, featuring a wide variety of extremely talented bands and musicians. Finally, Argali Records also serves to release selected works by John Lithium and Reon Mobius.

We are currently NOT accepting unsolicited albums at this point, for a variety of reasons. Hopefully, we will be able to resume doing so soon. Thank you for your patience in this regard.

For fans of Tim Hecker, Nadja, Aidan Baker, Beyond Sensory Experience, Lustmord, Coil, Yellow Swans, Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin, Atrium Carceri, and experimental electronica/drone/dark ambient in general. John Lithium returns with his second 'solo' album: "Insomnia". While the preceding album, "The Mysterious Stranger", was a harrowing glimpse into the inner mechanics of a melancholic persona, "Insomnia" is an auditory study and presentation of the phenomena of...

Just in time for Cinco De Mayo, Argali Records plunges headfirst into the strange and fascinating world of twisted plunderphonic collage soundscapes with this short, but sweet EP by Luxurious Dagger. Appropriated (or should that be 'liberated' instead) from the detritus of a turbulent pop culture ocean, "Glue Factory" is a deliriously miasma fusion of ephemeral proclamations and percussive elements, bent and twisted to shift uneasily around the psyche of the listener. Will easily...

Argali Records is proud to present "The Piano Concerto", a long-form avant-garde piano composition augmented with industrial atmospherics. In the words of the composers: "Imagine a thunderstorm over the mountains near the sea, a stream of piano sounds flowing into the wilderness of nature from a house on the mountain slope, a lonely soul expressing the amazement caused by the mighty forces of Nature. The Piano Concerto, by Buben and Nasta Labada, is a combination of the old piano...

Argali Records Presents An Analysis Of The Past: The Genesis Of Experimental Processes Yes indeed... While our gaze may be firmly set towards the future, it is important at times to indulge in retrospection. After all, without a firm grasp of where we came from and who we once were, we have little to no hope of firmly establishing who we will be and where we will go. To assist in this endeavor, Argali Records Netlabel presents "An Analysis Of The Past: The Genesis Of Experimental...

Warning: Please use discretion in volume when listening to and enjoying these songs. --- Argali Records is proud to present our first compilation: "Time Will Pass". While there is no specific 'theme' for this collection, initially a text was written by John Lithium explaining some of the concepts around the 'time will pass' set of ideas (namely, the permeability of time, the impermanence of fixed events and objects, and the subjective nature of sensory experience) [more on this can be...

The Game Owls returns to Argali Records with their second offering: “Trinity Ocean And The Zero Desert”. Featuring his distinct hybridization of post-rock/post-metal and experimental electronica, this album is a decidedly darker affair than “So The Heavens Can Hear Us…”. Yet, with the frequent acoustic touches and mournful vocals, this is an experience that is both personal and universal in scope: dark companion hymns for the days long left behind, and those still remaining.

The Jesus Fish Experience returns to Argali Records with their fourth release: Magnitudes Of Infinity. Several months of planning, composing, recording, and mastering have resulted in the creation of a two-headed behemoth of a composition, the second half featuring the vocal talents of Jordan Hyman of The Game Owls. In a lush marriage of dissonance and harmony, otherworldly soundscapes blend seamlessly with hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies. Minimalist, and yet still intense and emotive,...

If you have been following the progress of Argali Records for a while now, then you should (hopefully) be familiar with the work of The Jesus Fish Experience. Pursuing a dark, singular musical vision, "Cosmic Predation" fuses haunting e-bow melodies and dirges to the psyche of the listener. Comparisons to 'post-metal', noise rock, industrial, black metal, doom, sludge, and even dark ambient can be made, but thankfully the end result goes beyond such simplistic classifications....

A heartfelt exploration and expression of the infinite cosmos which surrounds and imprisons the Earth, "So The Heavens Can Hear Us, The Earth Will Be Our Sound" is a multi-faceted auditory document, radiating outward past the usual banal musical forms you typically experience. Although not easily lending itself to simple classification, it contains elements of avant-garde post-rock, experimental electronica, acoustic rock, and even varying strains of blues elements. Meanwhile, the...

"This my communication. Panicked orchestrations of lifetime lost dreams, the null, dull drone of a constant pain, the industrial impacts of such a pain, and the rock of a hopeful thought. Feel my soul." An enigmatic mix of avant-garde strains of dark ambient, industrial, electronica, and post-rock. Melancholic, personal, cryptic, enigmatic, prophetic, and poetic.

A collection of material recorded between 2008-2011. Some of these compositions were previously available for short periods of time, although many have not been released until now. This is to be considered as a compilation/retrospective, rather than a 'complete album'. Enjoy. As darkness descends and time quickens around me, I cannot escape escapism. --- I.

If you are looking to add an unexplainable presence and aura to your composition, then this set will help you on your way. While many of these 'songs' are able to stand under their own merits, they eagerly await for assimilation into your own designs, either in a remix and/or enhancement capacity. This collection is...

This collection is mostly sci-fi/cyberpunk/noir influenced and/or inspired. The first twenty-two tracks are brand-new songs composed in June, while the final three were recorded in May. The total collection is roughly 625 MB, with an average 'song' time of about two minutes. These are mainly drone-oriented tracks, although there are several...

This material was originally going to be released under the project title "Psychic Negation". However (much in the same manner as the aborted "Void Decompression" side-project material was incorporated into "Insomnia"), so these songs are now being released as a single EP. Two long-playing tracks, both slightly over twenty minutes long, they are both extensive meditations into frozen 'guitar' and 'synth' drone, the reverent ghost of post-rock roughly stretched...

Two long-form, experimental ambient remixes of material from the John Lithium album, "The Remixable Stranger" (http://www.archive.org/details/TheRemixableStranger). In the midst of shimmering drones, fragmented synth melodies, stuttering industrial frequencies, time-shifted melodies, and wordless technoid languages can also be heard. Simultaneously comforting, unsettling, and enigmatic. In the highly futurist aesthetic of this album, one might be tempted to claim that these songs are...

Industrialized dubstep: simultaneously menacing and foreboding. A distinct air of apocalypse surrounds the proceedings. Cryptic and hostile proclamations amongst desperate warnings.

Argali Records Netlabel proudly presents "Lobotomized Vol. 1", the first in a series of releases by Flat Affect collecting tracks from out-of-print splits. On this release, Flat Affect exudes a toxic auditory haze: an amalgamation of industrial, noise, power electronics, and drone, accentuated at points by obscured glimpses into the foreboding maelstrom of human interactions. As the musician himself notes, these tracks are meant to create tension within the listener, and to this end...

The Jesus Fish Experience returns with his second release for Argali Records: "Nihilist Machine". A highly caustic, experimental, and volatile cocktail of equal parts industrial, post-metal, doom, and noise-rock, here is the continuing saga of what might eventually termed as 'anti-futurism'. Why set your eyes on the future, when the present is rapidly collapsing beneath your feet? An intense focus is presented to the listener: the juxtaposition of the relationship between mass media...
